Australia is the sixth largest country in the world but has the lowest population density in the world
Australia’s coastline stretches almost 50,000 kilometres and is linked by over 10,000 beaches, more than any other country in the world.
Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef is home to the world’s largest oyster at 3 kilograms, the largest earthworm at over 4 metres is found in country Victoria, the Bass straight near Tasmania claims the heaviest crab at 14 kilograms and Australia’s tallest mountain is Mt Kosciusko at 2,228 metres above sea level.
The worlds longest piece of straight railway track stretches 478 kilometres across South Australia’s Nullarbor Plain. The longest fence, “the dingo fence” stretches 5,531 kilometres through Queensland and South Australia
Australia teems with animals, many of which are found only here. We have more mammals than anywhere else on earth and plenty of marsupials, from carnivorous Tasmanian devils to short-legged possums, sleepy koalas to powerful kangaroos.
Gotta love Australia…check out the video below…
